i began doing anti-oppression work because i was angry and wanted to prove my arguments. i continued doing anti-oppression work because i realized that it transformed me and grew my capacity to change and compassion for myself and others. the work then also transformed into liberation work. i continue to do liberation work because i believe in people’s capacity to change and i don’t want to lose that hope.
